#12 of 86 in Wildlife in Tasmania
Meet Australia’s iconic devils at Tasmanian Devil Unzoo, an innovative wildlife park set up to protect this endangered creature and educate the public about the importance of environmental conservation. The park’s main attraction is the devil, but you can also see other native animals, such as quolls and pademelons. Special presentations about the efforts to save Australia’s endangered animals are held in conjunction with daily feedings, during which visitors can approach the park’s friendly kangaroos and birds. You can also go on leisurely nature walks through the park’s botanic garden, which abounds with diverse plant and animal life. Don’t forget to stop by the gift shop, where every ticket and souvenir sold makes a little difference in the vital efforts to save the devils.

  • This place is one of a kind. Awesome sightings with Tasmanian Devils, kangaroos and wallaby's to pet and feed along awesome scenery! Also, the guide is very knowledgeable and has a lot of passion. Make sure you visit this place, you won't regret it! Much better construction than regular zoo's. This is totally different and more natural. Highly recommended.
  • What an amazing place and the staff are so knowledgeable. Fun watching the Tasmanian Devil, birds and kangaroos being fed. Then being able to walk around them because they're so full they don't bother you.
  • Advertising over rated what was available. Very basic compared to other tourist activities visited. Bird handler friendly, knowledgeable. Kids loved getting photo taken with heads in domes, smaller children to short needed lifting up by siblings. No Tassie devils seen in that area. Toilets, gift shop & area wheelchair friendly.
  • Where else in the world are you going to see a Tasmanian devil get fed, in-person? That said there's not really a whole lot else going on here and they charge you for it anyway. A good stop, but expensive and off the beaten path. Then again... you're at the bottom of the world.
  • I had a wonderful day out here. Fantastic (and entertaining) insight into the animals offered by all staff there. Feeding the kangaroos is a definite highlight!
